A GREAT-great-grandmother who claims to have 'invented the concept of toy boys' has celebrated her 100th birthday.

Sipping a glass of prosecco, Win Hart marked the momentous occasion at her home in Milford Haven on Monday (July 2).

As well as presents from friends and family, Mrs Hart was thrilled to receive special cards from The Queen, Prime Minister Theresa May, local MP Stephen Crabb, the Secretary of State for Wales, Pembrokeshire County Council and the Department for Work and Pensions.

"The card from the Queen was the one she was waiting for," said daughter Mo.

"She had a wonderful day, people came to see her all day, and the neighbours put up balloons outside the house for her."

Win was also treated to a delicious cake, courtesy of her local shop Milford News/Best One, in Charles Street, presented to the birthday girl by staff members Mo Tansey and Jason Edwards.

Born in West Malvern in Worcestershire in 1918, the eldest of six children, Win served in the Women's Auxilliary Air Force - the female arm of the Royal Air Force - during the Second World War.

She was posted to Egypt in 1948, where her she met her future husband and 'toy boy' while taking part in an amateur dramatic performance.

He was in charge of the lighting, she was on stage - and a year later they were married.

"Mum likes to say she invented the concept of a 'toy boy'," said Mo.

"Dad is a mere 94."

The pair lived and worked around the world, before being posted to Brawdy in Pembrokeshire.

After leaving the forces, the couple and their three children settled in Milford Haven, where Win has been happy ever since.

"She is a lovely, happy person," said Mo.

"She loves shopping and could chat for hours.

"Despite being the last of her siblings, she is still very cheerful and always kind."
